      Doggy Fashion Show was wonderful! My bozos wouldn't have any part of that but they sure are cute little outfits.

      I think my dog was reading over my shoulder. She just ran out of the room. But I (<--emphasis here) really like these outfits! And your lens.

      I'm trying to convince my vizslas they should try on some clothes. They have short fur, and it's cold in the winter, right? ;)
